"I look to Context for strategic advice. They have a strong capacity to differentiate between routine CR management issues and legitimate sustainability goals, and bring high-level ideas into sharp strategic focus. The Context team is adept at communicating Mission Zero to our stakeholders and translating the core sustainability objectives into business language. I always find they are up to speed with the wide range of issues relevant to the sector and the sustainability agenda as a whole. I would recommend Context to any company developing a sustainability strategy."
Ramon Arratia, European Sustainability Director,
"For more than a decade, Context has helped us engage with stakeholders and communicate our sustainability ambitions and performance. They understand our business and the sustainability challenges we face. Context has helped us produce issue briefings on issues such as biofuels and sustainable packaging, reports on sustainable agriculture, and targeted mailers for opinion leaders that tell our story on topics such as climate change and improving the health and well-being of others. The Context team provides ongoing support for our online communications around the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan. "
Helen Keep, Head of SRI Engagement,
"Context has supported Centrica with sustainability messaging, external reporting and stakeholder engagement since 2009. Their team is professional and responsive to our needs and they are skilled at challenging our thinking, providing an independent perspective when needed. "
Simon Henderson, Director of Corporate Responsibility & Digital Media,
"Context’s focus groups gave us the opportunity to get open and honest feedback from stakeholders in a way we could not have achieved if we had hosted a similar event ourselves. Their expert facilitation created a relaxed atmosphere that encouraged an open and frank dialogue among participants, and allowed us to be there as active listeners and hear their thoughts first hand. "
Michelle Fairbairn, Corporate Responsibility Manager,
"The Context team has provided invaluable support for Vodafone’s sustainability communications over the past 10 years. As our sustainability reporting continues to evolve, Context challenges us to push ourselves further each year. They deliver consistently clear, concise and spin-free text for a wide range of communications including our award-winning sustainability report, our Group sustainability website and our B2B marketing site.
Context understands the sustainability issues relevant to our industry and helps us make complex issues and technical information easily digestible for non-experts in our research reports such as Carbon Connections and Connected Agriculture, and our dedicated website on mobiles, masts and health."
Christèle Delbé, Sustainability Director,
"Context has helped us communicate our corporate responsibility (CR) story effectively for more than a decade. Having supported the development of our standalone CR report as it evolved, the Context team helped us make a smooth transition to integrated reporting. Context continues to support Syngenta in making the CR performance reporting more accessible and transparent in our online annual report."
Ylva Stiller, Senior Public Policy & CR Manager,
"Context has been our corporate responsibility strategic partner since 2008, helping us devise our communications strategy, manage our issues and develop our reporting platform.

I particularly appreciate Context’s ability to provide the right balance of support and challenge: always encouraging us to do even better. This is especially helpful in the management of the debates we hold on our issues forum website: Ourthinkingaboutdrinking.com."

"We have worked with Context for seven years, finding their guidance extremely helpful and their attitude inspiring. They know how to challenge us to do our very best."
Tama McWhinney, Director of Corporate Communications,
"I hired Context in 2004 after an exhaustive search for a consultancy that could help me develop a sustainability and reporting strategy for my then employer, United Technologies Corporation (UTC). Context’s support was invaluable and with their help we developed a broad stakeholder outreach program and produced what has been hailed as an early example of integrated reporting. At PepsiCo, Context supports our sustainability team in telling our stories about the groundbreaking work we do around the world, especially in sustainable agriculture and environmental sustainability."
